to people out here and they told us certainly the question of could this happen again weighs on their minds. pg&e is expected to release a list into areas of concern. and certainly people want to see that less. the question is, what are they going to do about that list? and that is still unclear this morning. now, san jose's mayor, chuck reed, said that the intersection of taz min and first is on the list. that's what he's been told by pg&e. and they are on this apparent list that could be released as early as today. but other than that, it doesn't appear the city has gotten much more. the city wants to make this list public. they have already made public areas of fremont, south san francisco, and livermore, that have been deemed high risk. but what this means in terms of an action plan, still not clear. and people we talked to this morning say they are worried. >> i would probably try to avoid those areas that are high risk. because obviously something bad happened once. and it is possible that it could happen in san jose. >> reporter: how much this list will actually tell us when it it is

. >> they know they are short of their mandate on both counts. >> reporter: vincent reinhart used to help the fed meet its dual mandate as a senior policy adviser. with unemployment at close to 10%, he says it's clear the economy isn't operating anywhere close to maximum employment, which is closer to 5%. and what about price stability? indicators of core inflation are under 1%, with many prices flat or falling. but that isn't the same as price stability. >> it's possible to have too much of a good thing. >> reporter: why? because periods of high unemployment tend to push prices down and prices are not stable when they are rising or falling too much. >> as inflation starts falling and maybe even veering into deflation, the real value of what you have to pay back goes up and up and up. so it's harder for people who borrow, including the u.s. government, in that regard. >> reporter: with the fed failing to meet either of its mandates, economist josh bivens says the conclusion is clear. >> you're missing both mandates, but in the same direction for once. we're not acting aggressively enough to drive

the kids and the parents. so we weren't, we used to bring math classes over to chez panisse and feed them lunch. the teachers were having a meeting and i wanted them to incorporate these ideas. we had to feed them to them. we invited the principals for dinner and lunch. it was all through drawing them in through a pleasurable experience. once you get hooked, you see, on the flavors, you give very willingly. [laughter]. >> i want to get to soul food in a second. how do you answer? you pick a carrot? what is the education? what is the narrative? >> the math teachers bring their kids out into the garden. >> math? >> math, into the garden, we have a couple they decide they are measuring the beds. the kids are having a good time doing this thing because they were in their boots in the grass and picking a couple of ras berries on the way. hands on education is a way to really make an impression and have the education. so they are doing that. they are counting snails. >> counting snails. >> you know, there are so many ways. how many buckets of water does it take to water the bed? it is just very

wanted to walk away, potentially see another million jobs lost. but we said we've got to try. and now u.s. auto industries are profitable again and hiring again, back on their feet again, on the move again. [applause] there were folks who were wondering whether we could hold the banks accountable for what they had done to taxpayers; or were skeptical about whether we could make infrastructure investments and investments in clean energy and investments in education, and hold ourselves accountable for how that money was spent. there was a lot of skepticism about what we were trying to do. and a lot of it was unpopular. but i want to remind everybody here, you did not elect me to do what was popular. you elected me to do what was right. [applause] that's what we've been fighting together for -- to do what's right. [applause] todon't have our finger out the wind to know what's right. that's why we passed health insurance reform that will make it illegal for insurance companies to deny you coverage because of a preexisting condition. [applause] historic reforms that gives over 30 million ameri

minister and his family on the loss of his father? the words he used to express his love for his father touched everyone. today, as we welcome the prime minister back to his place, i also congratulate him and mrs. cameron on the birth of their new baby. let me ask about an issue that is of great concern on both sides of the house -- the trafficking of women and girls for sex. this week, a gang was convicted here in london for bringing girls as young as 13 to this country to be sold for sex. the work of the police and prosecutors has protected young women from that gang, but this evil trade is growing. all parties in the house are united in their abhorrence of it. will the prime minister update us on the work that is being undertaken to stop it? >> i thank the right honorable and learned lady not only for what she said about the serviceman whom we lost in afghanistan but for her very kind words about my father and our new daughter. i am very grateful for what was said last week by the shadow lord chancellor and for the letters that i have received from members right across the house. it
